Is modifying a contract without my consent legal

Asked on Oct 10th, 2017 on Contracts - California
More details to this question:
I signed a contract with a program that pays the majority portion of my rent. I agreed to start paying my portion of the rent in November. But the program changed the month to October by using whiteout and made a copy of it to make it seem like it was the original contract and never contacted me to address this change and did not include on the new contract that it had been modified and by doing so I was served a 3 day notice to vacate because of lack of payment. The new contract was made to look like I agreed and signed it. Is this legal if not what can I do about this matter

No, it is not legal for a party to alter a signed contract and try to make it appear as if the other party had agreed to it.  I am not familiar with California procedure, but basically you need to, as soon as possible, start a proceeding against the forging party and your landlord, and obtain a preliminary injunction to prevent your eviction.  You should probably consult a California attorney.  If you can't afford one, speak to your local legal aid office or bar association.
